  17. 17. Don’t want a comment like this: “We did a shore excursion and walked around Saint John - all very pleasant but unfortunately we docked at a cargo facility and were quite far from the city center. This wasn’t particularly inviting or convenient compared to the other ships that were at modern cruise piers. Not sure why we weren’t.”
